New set up 175 G Mixed Reef

Hey all!! Just wanted to introduce myself and start reading some threads. I am in the beginning stages of setting up a 175 G Reef Aquarium in the wall with viewing from two rooms. We just received our kit to drill the holes and install the overflows on the end panels as well as the return holes. Woooohooooo. Then the tank will be inserted into it's resting place that is ready and waiting in the wall. : ) I ordered a custom built Berlin Sump System from LifeReef and have a shopping list a mile long at Marine Depot. I have on order the Solaris I5 LED lights. I am looking forward to buying a bit more fun stuff such as LR, LS and the rest of the living village. I look forward to meeting fellow lovers of the sea and welcome any and all advice in my venture.
Thanks
Lori

Welcome to AA, LoriB! You can view some retailers that we listed in the forum or you can hop into Underwateroutlet to get some LRs. Yeah, you're lucky marinedepot is in CA, so no tax for u :P, I gotta pay tax if I order from there Don't forget to get refractometer, they got some nice deals there for that!

FOWLR = fish only with live rock so any tank that has corals would be considered a reef. I think if you search around there is a list of acronyms around here somewhere since a lot of people use some weird ones around here. took me a while to figure out what they all meant.

The eel tank on the bottom was a FOWLR tank. I have to get rid of that pic because I tore that tank down this week. The big tank on top is my reef tank. Thanks for the compliment.
